A study in the Journal of Nutrition found that children's snacking habits can be influenced by imposing restrictions on food available during school hours. One way of restricting the amount of sugary snacks is to offer healthy options in school vending machines, such as raisins, nuts, seeds and yogurts.
Our Eat Smart chilled snack and drink machines can be stocked with a wide range of tasty healthy snacks. Some schools even stock the machines with freshly made snacks such as wraps and healthy sandwiches, made on their own premises.
The Eat Smart machines are custom branded versions of our highly popular SnackPoint range, which have separate chilling zones and innovative temperature control, to ensure food and drinks are kept fresh and cool.
Children should drink an average of 1.5-2 litres everyday, as dehydration has an adverse effect on mental performance and ability to learn. Water is the healthiest option, but based on the recommended guidelines, only a high capacity point of use water dispenser such as the Azure can cope with the excessive demand of establishments such as schools, colleges and universities.
Plumbed into the mains, the Azure filters water through a UV water sanitization system and in-built filters remove any impurities and unusual tastes for pure, fresh tasting water that pupils will love. The additional 500ml bottle-fill facility means pupils can refill bottles for a more environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic cups.
"The Westomatic machines supplied by Cafepoint have been a huge success, the pupils often purchase drinks and then refill their bottles with water from the Azure. The 'bank' which includes; a Solo Encore, Azure and a SnackPoint machine (which we fill with healthy options such as dried fruit and nutritious cereal bars) provide an essential 'before and after canteen hours' service for pupils and teachers which helps to keep sales volumes up."
